Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen dies of cancer at age 65

Quote:


Microsoft is mourning the passing of Paul Allen, a renowned philanthropist and business leader who co-founded the company more than four decades ago. He was 65.

Allen died Monday from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, according to a statement from Vulcan Inc. on behalf of the Allen family, Vulcan Inc. and the Paul G. Allen Network.

In a written statement, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella noted Allen’s huge impact on technology and much more:

“Paul Allen’s contributions to our company, our industry and to our community are indispensable. As co-founder of Microsoft, in his own quiet and persistent way, he created magical products, experiences and institutions, and in doing so, he changed the world. I have learned so much from him – his inquisitiveness, curiosity and push for high standards are something that will continue to inspire me and all of us at Microsoft.

“Our hearts are with Paul’s family and loved ones. Rest in peace.”

An archival photo of Allen can be downloaded here.

It just goes to show you just how short life can be. I read that his dad (or was it his mother?) died just five days after a simple knee surgery due to a blood clot.

I would have loved to meet Paul Allen and I would love to meet Bill Gates. As someone who loves all things computers and tech, I think we'd have some interesting conversations. I too wondered how gasoline was manufactured, and it was at the public library on their computer ( I didn't have one) that I read at the howitworks website about how refineries work and what not. It's like a giant chemistry set, really.

I loved Popular Electronics. To this day I still have plans I photocopied from the magazine on how to build a poor mans, but pretty cool basic "bug" detector that in fact decoded the received audio. I've been meaning to always put it together and I even bought the copper clad boards and etching solution from Radio Shack years ago. What's so funny is just this week I bought a similar basic "bug" detector device on eBay. When I got it I immediately tested it. It does alert to DECT 6.0 and GSM modulation. And the eBay auction claimed it has a range of 1 MHz-8000 MHz.

Paul Allen and Bill Gates along with Steve Jobs were pioneers. They have forever shaped the way we do things today. That is for sure.
